Vacuum and gear pump manufacturers in Turkey

IndustrySouth-East European INDUSTRIAL Мarket - issue 2/2009

Pumps industry production in Turkey began in mid-1950s and the industry started to develop rapidly in the early 1960s. Small and medium size companies dominate the Turkish pumps industry  which comprises approximately 899 manufacturing companies in the sector. Number of people employed in the sector is about 5660.
Pumps are increasingly used in agricultural irrigation and in the manufacturing industry. Nowadays Turkey is trying to improve land and water resources and expand irrigation. Pumps also have a wide variety of applications in almost all subsectors of the Turkish manufacturing industry, mainly in the strong food, chemical, fertilizer and petroleum industry. Other important consumer sectors for liquid pumps are the energy, tourism and building sector.
Industrialization and huge agricultural production have resulted in the emergence of a strong pumps sector in Turkey. Advanced production methods, such as Computer Numerical Control (CNC) and Computer Aided Design (CAD) are being carried out successfully in the large sized enterprises. Production planning, quality control and tests are realized by means of modern methods in these enterprises. In addition, research and development work also contributes to the success recorded by these companies. As a result every kind of small capacity pump can be produced in Turkey. In addition, there are a few large sized companies which are specialized in the production of high capacity pumps.
Turkish-made pumps are exported to almost 152 countries in the world. Major export markets are Germany, Iraq, the United Kingdom, the USA, Russian Federation, France and Kazakhstan.
The object of the following article are some of the leading Turkish manufacturers in the field of vacuum and gear pump production and export.

Gucum Pump and Machine Industry Co. is one of the leading companies in the field of vacuum pump technology in Turkey. The company has been manufacturing liquid ring vacuum pumps since 1970. Liquid ring vacuum pumps are in class of positive displacement pumps. Using the expansion and reduction principal in the cell of impeller blade, they vacuum the gases with a liquid ring. If the appropriate liquid is selected (generally water) all the gases and vapors are moved.
For a liquid ring vacuum pump the final suction pressure is limited with the liquid ring evaporation pressure. During service liquid temperature is 15 0C at the pump discharge vacuum pressure reaches
25 mmHg (33 mbar).
Liquid ring vacuum pumps have a wide application area in industry. Because of their working conditions are in liquid, they are useful for applications which include moisture like filtration, drying, refrigeration and distillation
Gucum’s liquid ring vacuum pumps are used mainly in the food, chemical, plastic, textile, glass, pharmaceutical and brick and tile industry. Other applications of their pumps are at deodorization and refinery applications during manufacturing edible oil; producing yoghurt, milk and juice; producing jam and candies; at the macaroni, tomato paste and conserve factories to remove the vapour; sugar refinery; producing agricultural products, producing amyl; producing cigarettes and alcohol; viscerating poultries, etc.
